Special Broadcasts Of
March - April 2012
Nauck's Vintage Records Broadcast
March 31, April 1 and April 7
Radio Dismuke is pleased to announce the eleventh semi-annual Nauck's Vintage Records Broadcast hosted by Kurt Nauck, owner of Nauck's Vintage Records, the world's largest and most prestigious auction house of rare and collectible vintage records.
For these special broadcasts, Kurt generously makes all of the nearly 10,000 vintage records in his current auction available for the program. During the broadcast, Radio Dismuke will depart from its strictly 1920s and 1930s popular music and jazz format and play recordings from just about every musical genre imaginable from the dawn of commercial recorded sound in the 1890s through the end of the 78 rpm era in the late 1950s. Many of the records in the auction are extremely rare and the vast majority have never been reissued in modern formats.
One of the things that is special about the broadcast is that it will provide listeners a rare opportunity to hear very early cylinder records played through Kurt's Archeophone - a modern, electrical playback device designed specifically for the reproduction and preservation of vintage cylinder records. Late 19th century wax cylinder records are especially fascinating because very frequently they are the last surviving copies of the recorded performance.
In addition to vintage cylinders
78 rpm discs, the broadcast will feature other vintage
formats as well
Edison diamond discs, radio transcription disc,
picture records and
Hit of the Week records. Radio Dismuke
listeners have the
to hear recordings from a wide variety of musical
genres ranging from
and dance band music to classical, opera, blues,
country and even early
rock and roll.
The broadcast will air in continuous rotation throughout the weekend of March 31 and April 1 and will be repeated again on Saturday April 7
The Nauck broadcasts provide a
opportunity to hear some extremely rare and historic
a good number of which have not been available to a
public audience in
many decades. It is another example of how
Internet radio is able
to provide to a worldwide audience highly specialized,
that traditional media outlets are simply not able or
willing to take
